Opportunities to learn and teach computational journalism shouldn't be limited to college J-school courses. An emerging project called Computer-Assisted Reporting Study Hall intends to be a place where students and working journalists alike can work together to build their skills across newsrooms and platforms. Join WRAL reporter Tyler Dukes to brainstorm what this fledgling community should offer, how it can be a valuable resource for reporters and where it should go next.
